We believe that it is important to be thoughtful when considering God's Word, the Bible. We hope you will check back from time to time for thoughts on God's Word and how it applies to us daily.
"He who overcomes shall inherit all things and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone which is the second death." -Revelation 21:7-8
What a promise, glorious in its simplicity! Overcome and be God's child. Overcome because you are God's child. But, to overcome will cost us. Namely, that cost will be born out in our abandonment and rejection of those things that pull souls into the second death. At one point or the other we have all been marked by our own part in this wickedness - cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, etc. But, by Christ's blood we overcome. Your part, your inheritance, is with God oh child! Only demonstrate courage and belief and reject the filth that seeks your demise. As the Lord said to Cain, "Why are you angry? And why has your countenance fallen? If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it."* Take courage believer. Overcome. Rule over sin by Jesus' blood.
